Aldi donates £1m to Apprenticeship funding to small businesses in 2023

Aldi is set to donate £1 million to small and medium-sized businesses in 2023, to help fund local apprenticeship schemes across the country.

Aldi has donated over £1.7 million of levy funding to date, including to nationwide not-for-profit Management Development Services (MDS), which offers leadership training opportunities in the food supply industry.

MDS will receive a portion of the latest £1 million investment, alongside training organisation Total People and Aldi’s principal apprenticeship provider, Lifetime. All donated funds will be used to support apprenticeship schemes run by small to medium businesses across the country, in sectors such as early years education, operations management, hospitality and health and social care.

Lisa Murphy, Learning & Development Director at Aldi UK said: “Apprenticeships play a crucial part not only in our sector, but in helping people across the UK, at all levels, reach their full potential.

“Last year, we recruited over 150 of our own apprentices across our Store, Logistics and National Buying teams, and enrolled over 50 existing colleagues onto apprenticeship programmes to help them gain industry-recognised qualifications and develop their skills through practical hands-on experience. We’re really excited to see how our £1 million investment will be used by businesses in the communities we serve to help people gain employment and develop new skills.”

Aldi also recently announced that it is looking to recruit more than 500 apprentices across the UK this year.
